Special Features
Special Features
Our primary goal is to provide a" home" that also has all the clinical support required to care for the older person.

We are adjacent to Woodhaugh Gardens and near to the Botanic Gardens in North Dunedin. We are conveniently located being just 2kms from the City Centre and Dunedin Hospital with the Gardens Shopping Centre nearby.

Our home's layout allows us to offer five separate areas, each with its own lounge and dining area. This creates and feeling of homeliness, and allows residents more options. The overall size and scale of our home means that we can offer a large range of services including outings and activities.

This home was founded by the Brown family in 1982 and has a comfortable family atmosphere.

Recognising that our residents have increased medical needs we have three Registered Nurse's on staff. Our house Doctors visit two days per week and are immediately available to us from their nearby practice.

We would be pleased to welcome you and your family to visit us at a time that suits you.
